The best way to get started

The Pro-Ject Essential III is the perfect solution for the budding audiophile, with precision-crafted materials and simple, elegant designs that look as lovely as they sound. Building on the award-winning Essential II, the new Essential III features a more refined bearing and an improved MDF body to give you smooth playback and a lively, balanced sound.

Simple, elegant design

Clean lines and classic geometry make the Essential III a stylish addition to any room, continuing Pro-Ject’s decades-long reputation for elegant, understated turntables.

Engineered with care:

Ortofon OM10 Cartridge & aluminium tonearm.

The Essential III Phono comes pre-fitted with an Ortofon OM10 cartridge. Its smooth movement allows the OM10 to extract astounding new details from your records, and bring them to life with a vivid, evocative feel. The cartridge works in concert with Pro-Ject’s finely-engineered 8.6” aluminium tonearm to reveal detail in your favourite records like you’ve never heard before.

MDF construction

A major design evolution from the award-winning Essential II, the MDF used in the body and platter of the Essential III offers a more solid build, with better vibration-management for a smooth, natural tone.

Key Features:

Adjustable Counterweight & Anti-skating weight

Unlike the Jukebox & Primary lines, the Essential ranges features adjustable counterweights and anti-skating weights to accomodate any stylus or cartridge upgrade in the future.

Manual speed control

Play both 33rpm and 45rpm records with a simple adjustment of the pulley which the drive belt sits on.

Connect-It E Included

The Essential III comes with the shielded Connect-It E RCA cable ready to go, so the sound that comes off the record will come out of your speakers crystal-clear and free of interference.
